great wardrobe addition
This jacket is great to have, when you don't feel like wearing your heavy long coat, and most down jackets are waist-length, and with casual wear - like jeans, or leggings, you can really feel cold from the waist down! This coat is just the right length for casual wear, great for walking, great 'car coat', and sitting - keeps you well covered, where short jackets sometimes fail - especially if you are wearing low-waist pants. I love the slim cut, I can put this jacket on over a work outfit, and look great during my commute! However, do not count on this jacket to protect you much from the rain; I have gotten completely drenched... The water went right through it. If it does get wet and all soggy, looking completely ruined - put it in the dryer with a bunch of tennis balls, it bounces right back!
I live in this coat! It's like wearing a down sleeping bag! One of the best things about the coat is that it gives you a lot of coverage and warmth, but is very lightweight. I've washed it many times and it still looks great. Getting ready to order a second one in another color!!! On the pricey side, but so worth it.
I've wanted this coat for a long time - didn't need another one. Just wanted it. Envy my friends each time I see them wearing theirs. At last, my want overcame my need. I LOVE this coat. It is a beauty in Prussian Blue. I feel like a million bucks wearing it. Can't believe I waited so long.
